Web Manager Default Website
Web Manager Default Web Site
The Web Manager PlugIn comes with a default web site that you can edit as HTML files
and graphics. You must edit the web site before posting it for the public. We have made
it simple to edit. You can use a text editor or an HTML editor.

The components that make up the site include HTML files, graphics files, and ASP
pages. There is little you can edit in the ASP pages. They are delivered as compiled
files. However, they use INCLUDES and CSS to create most of their look and feel, and
you can edit these files.




This folder structure is installed with the Web Manager.


                                                                                       1
Printed Documentation




General Structure of the Site

All the full-page HTML pages in the web site have a similar structure. They have a
Header section, a Body section, and a Footer section. There are notes in the source
code to tell you where to change components. You can search and replace to insert
your own company name, product name, and other text.

The files that create full pages represent the tabs Home, Products, Support, About Us,
and Free Trial.

     index.html
     description.html
     support.html
     aboutus.html
     freetrial.html

The other files in the folders contain text and components that are included as parts of
pages by these files (above) and by the ASP pages in the \WebManager\ folder.

You can change any of the files in the document root folder. The files in the
\WebManager\ folder structure were not meant to be edited, and could cause problems
if you try to do so.

The tabs Buy Now and My Account are created by the ASP pages in the
\WebManager\ folder structure.

The various components of the web site are labeled in the default installation. Just
install the PlugIn and run the web site and run through all the pages. You will see the
source file names on the pages, so you will know which files to edit.

Edit the source files to remove the labels and add your own text. Right-click on any of
the graphics and select Properties to see the file name and location of the graphic
component.

Introduction
The Web Manager and E-Commerce PlugIns
The Web Manager for RBackup v11 places virtually all
of RBackup's server controls into an easy to use web
console that can be operated from any computer.
Tiered logins for Admin, Group Managers, and Users
allow maximum flexibility in self-service, convenience
and integration.

Click Here to view the Web Manager and E-Commerce
PlugIns on a live Server!

The Web Manager integrates seamlessly with the E-
Commerce PlugIn for a complete end-to-end web based solution for user registration,
billing, credit card processing, software deployment, and tiered management.

Here are just some of the highlights of the Web Manager:

Graphical Executive Summary - An administrative console displays graphs and charts
showing critical information at a glance, including backup status for all users, the
distribution of your client editions including trial accounts, your available and used
credits, your server's load over the past 24 hours, and your disk space allocation. More
Info...

Service Plans - The Web Manager allows you to define an unlimited number of service
plans based on quota, software edition (Personal, Desktop, Server), and assign them to
Account Groups. (The E-Commerce PlugIn also ads price and payment term.) More
Info...

Account Groups - You can assign Account Groups to companies or account
executives who can log in and manage the Users in their accounts. You can set and
manage Account Group quotas independently from User quotas. More Info...

Support for RBackup v11's Credits Licensing System - Version 11's Credits license
management system replaces previous versions' system of managing client licenses by
Users.

Installing Client software uses Credits on the server, depending on the edition of the
Client software installed (see below.) The Web Manager manages recycling Credits the
same way the RBS Manager used to do with Users - deleting an account returns
Credits to the available pool. This allows Service Providers to distribute far less
expensive Client software, depending on their needs.


                                                                                      13
Printed Documentation



RBS Servers are automatically converted to the new Credits system upon installation of
Version 11, and receive 4 credits for every User v10 (and earlier) client license. For
example, a 100-client system will become a 400-Credit system. The upgrade is
seamless.

Support for RBackup v11's Multiple Client Editions - The Web Manager supports
the two new Client editions - Desktop and Personal, in addition to the existing Server
Edition. All three Editions are built by the Web Manager simultaneously, and can be
associated individually with any service plan.

        The Server Edition backs up Windows Servers. It uses 4 Credits. It has all
         available features turned ON, including unlimited Exchange mailboxes, SQL
         Server, System State, Active Directory, and Sharepoint.
        The Desktop Edition backs up Windows desktop computers. It uses 2 credits. It
         will not install on Server operating systems. It has all features turned on except
         support for Exchange, Active Directory and Sharepoint.
        The Personal Edition is for personal computers. It uses 1 credit. It has the
         following features turned off: Exchange, SQL Server, System State, Active
         Directory, Sharepoint, Bit Backup, Copy to Disk, Delete Files from Server,
         Advanced Interface, Mapped Drives, File Selection Interface, Multiple Backup
         Sets, Differential Backup, Keep Latest Version, Purge Files by Sets, and Local
         Mirror.

Free Trial Accounts - The Web Manager supports free trial accounts with limits that
you can define, from 1 to 10 GB, and from 1 to 30 days. You can associate any of
RBackup v11's Client Editions - Personal, Desktop, and Server - with any of your
service plans or trial accounts.

Trial credits are free, and equal to one half of the credits available on your Server.
When trial accounts expire, their credits are added back to your pool of credits. For
example, if your Server has 400 paid credits, RBS gives you 200 additional free credits
to use in trial accounts - a total of 600 credits. Credits never expire.

Live Real Time Monitor - A live real-time monitor screen uses Ajax technologies to
show you the activity on your RBS Server as your users backup and restore data. More
Info...

Reports - Live interactive reports can be filtered, sorted, printed, and exported to Excel.
They include Executive Summary, User Summary, User Session, User Quota, Disk
Resources, Transactions, and User Listing. You can run detailed reports on successful
backups, missed backups, failed backups, users over quota, new users, and other
statistics. More Info...

Branding - Brand your service using the built-in web-based branding utility. Add your
own graphics and icons, change the client software's name, its installation folder, screen
captions, help files, and more than 100 other branding options. More Info...

Customization - Customize your software's installer and the features you want to make
available in your service plans. Turn some features and options off or on. Alter the way
the software looks and feels. Change file retention and selection defaults. There are
more than 250 customization options. More Info...

Email Notifications - The Web Manager can send eight automated, customizable
HTML emails triggered by various events. Emails can be merged automatically with
data like users' current storage quota, percentage of quota used, and 18 other data
items. An email editor is built into the Web Manager.

There are emails for successful backups, missed backups, failed backups, users over
quota, new users, plan upgrades and service cancellations. You can also manually
broadcast email to all users and/or groups. The Web Manager also sends you an email
whenever a new user signs up. More Info...

Web Site - The Web Manager contains a seven page Flash-enabled website that you
can customize and host for yourself if you like. It integrates with the E-Commerce
PlugIn. More Info...



The E-Commerce PlugIn
The E-Commerce PlugIn for RBackup v11 integrates with the Web
Manager for a complete end-to-end web based solution for user
registration, billing, credit card processing, software deployment,
and tiered management. Accept credit card payments through
Authorize.net, Payflo Pro, PayPal, and manual processing.

Here are some of the highlights of the E-Commerce PlugIn:

Web-based Software Distribution - Your customers can register for an account online
and download their software immediately.

User Console - End users can log in to restore data, view their account details and
storage quota, perform a disaster recovery, reinstall their software, run various reports,
and get help. More Info...

Order Tracking - A unique order tracking system consolidates all your orders onto one
screen for easy management. When one of your customers changes his plan, or adds
more storage space, or when a new user signs up, a transaction appears with
appropriate options that you might want to take. More Info...


                                                                                         15
Printed Documentation



Credit Card Processing - The E-Commerce PlugIn integrates software deployment
with automated credit card processing. End users can go online, pay with their credit
card, and register for an account automatically.

Payment Gateways - The following payment gateways are supported: Authorize.net,
PayPal Express Checkout, Payflo Pro, the built-in offline credit card processing (manual
processing), and the built-in Bill Me gateway which supports direct customer billing.
More Info...

Recurring Billing - The E-Commerce PlugIn supports automated recurring billing
through the payment gateways that support it (currently Authorize.net and Payflow Pro).
Your customers' credit cards are automatically billed on a configurable term (None,
Monthly, Quarterly, Half-Yearly, Annually.) If a recurring payment fails for any reason,
you are notified through an entry in the Order Tracking system. You can optionally set
user accounts to suspend automatically after a number of days if recurring billing fails.

Coupons - A powerful built-in coupon management system lets you assign coupon
codes for percentage-off, applicable to specific plans or to all plans. Coupons can be set
to become active on any date, and to expire on any date. This helps support multiple
marketing plans. More Info...

SSL Support - The E-Commerce PlugIn requires an SSL certificate to comply with data
privacy regulations. SSL Certificates can be obtained for as little as $29.00.

Accounts Menu
Account Group
(Administrator's login only)

Use the Account Group menu to add and manage account groups. You can group end
user accounts for management purposes. The Group Manager might be the IT person
at a company with several backup accounts. Grouping end user accounts lets you
assign a login to the Group Manager, who can manage his own accounts using the Web
Manager PlugIn.

The Email address for the Account Group is also the username used to log into the Web
Manager. This is also the email address that will receive email notifications sent to the
Account Group Email.

The Root Directory is the fully qualified path (including drive letter) containing the
backup data for new users added to this Account Group. Changing the Root Directory
after backups have been done by the end users in a group will not move their data. New
users will use the new root directory. Existing users will continue to use their current
directories.

The Quota is the amount of storage space that will be allocated to each new user in this
group. This triggers the Over Quota email notification.

The Client Activity chart shows you a historical overview of the activity in your RBS
Server as a number of "events" over time. The default timeline is the most recent 24
hours, hour by hour. An "Event" is a connection to the RBS Server. It can be a backup
session or a restore session, or any other event that uses CPU and bandwidth on the
RBS Server.

Use this chart to balance the load on your Server by adjusting end user schedules,
bandwidth throttling, and Server clustering.

Timeline selections are 24 Hours, Weekly and Monthly.

Executive Summary
(Administrator and Group Manager logins)

The Executive Summary report is an overview of recent activity on your RBS Server. It
is best viewed daily as a quick update on the past twenty four hours of activity. It shows
successful backups, failed backups, and missed backups.

Missed Backups: Backups are not considered "Missed" until after the time set for the
Missed Backup Email Notification. Service Providers typically set this time to 7:00 or
8:00 AM. So, running this report after this time will show accurate data.

All reports can be exported to Excel or printed. The page size can be selected, and

Coupons
(E-Commerce PlugIn only, Administrator and Group Manager logins)

A powerful built-in coupon management system lets you assign coupon codes for
percentage-off, applicable to specific plans or to all plans. Coupons can be set to
become active on any date, and to expire on any date. This helps support multiple
marketing plans.

The Administrator can edit all coupons and add new coupons. Group Managers can edit
only the coupons associated with plans assigned to their account groups, and Group
Managers cannot add new coupons.




Coupon Code - Enter any alpha-numeric word. Customers will enter this code on the
checkout page.

Plan Name - Select the Plan for which this coupon applies, or select -- All Plans --

Discount - Enter a percentage number here. Do not enter the % character. For
example, 20.00 means "20% Off"




                                                                                       39

Customize Installer
(Administrator login only)

Your RBS Software comes with Server and Client modules. The Client software should
be customized for your Remote Backup Server before you distribute it.

     To use your software you must first customize it, at least through the
     Cusomization and Branding screen and the Client Options screen. This is
     where most mistakes are made when setting up an RBS software system for
     the first time. Please be careful.

You will use this section to customize your Client software so it looks and acts like you
want it to when your customers install it. This is a very powerful function that allows you
to fully brand your own RBS Client software.

This allows you to deliver a highly customized Remote Backup solution to a wide range
of customers - from those who want to completely manage their own backups to those
who want a simple one-touch set-and-forget solution with few options.

This feature creates customized self-installers (single .EXE files) for your Client
software at the touch of a button that can be distributed over the Internet, as an Email
attachment, by CD, or on a local network.

All of the settings that can be changed using the Web Manager PlugIn have on-screen
instructions. There are 300+ other settings that can be changed by editing .REG files or
.INI files. Advanced Instructions for editing these files can be found in the Customizing &
Installing the Client Software section of the RBS Server's help file.

Your screens may differ slightly from these examples.

The Client Options screen sets up the most important parts of the Client installers.

Select Plan - Select the Plan to which you want to apply these changes.

RBS Server IP Address - Enter the RBS Server's IP Address or Domain Name here. If
you select Use Server Locator, your Server Locator Host Name will automatically be
entered here. Your Server Locator Host Name is your serial number +
".ddns.rbsnet.net" like this:

                            12345678.ddns.rbsnet.net

Read more about the Server Locator here.

You can enter as many as 32 IP addresses or Domain Names here representing 32
RBS Servers, separated with semicolons, as long as the total length of the input does
not exceed 255 characters. The Client software will try the Servers in sequence until
one of them answers. This is useful if you have two mirrored RBS Servers operating as
fail-overs, or multiple RBS Servers sharing a common drive:



                                                                                       43
Printed Documentation

         server1.domain.com;server2.domain.com;myfailover.com

In the Evaluation version, enter your RBS Server's PUBLIC IP ADDRESS here to create
clients that can connect from OUTSIDE your network. Enter its PRIVATE IP ADDRESS
to create clients that can connect from INSIDE your network.

     What's my Public IP Address? - You can see your Public IP Address on the
     RBS Web Site. Go to http://remote-backup.com/support/


Admin Override Password - Some features of the Remote Backup Client can be
changed on the Client software itself after entering an override password. Pick your
override password and enter it here. Please note that this is CASE-SENSITIVE. This
password is used at the Client to change Administrator's features. See the RBS
Server's Help File - Client Administrator's Override for more information.

Temp Backup Path - This is the location on the Client's hard drive where temporary
files are stored during backup processing.

BitBackup Reference Path - The location of the BitBackup Data Store. BitBackup
stores a copy of all the files selected for backup using the BitBackup method (on the
Schedule Screen). The space required for this storage space is the total native file size
of all files for which BitBackup has been selected.

Encryption Method - Select the default encryption method. You can select from seven
types: Two kinds of DES, Triple DES, Blowfish 448-bits, AES 128-bits, AES 192-bits,
and AES 256-bits.

Client Locks - You can lock out certain features of the Client software, preventing end
users from using them. For example, if you don't want clients to be able to change
backup schedules or change file selections, select Lock Scheduler Window and Lock
Ability to Change/Add File Selection.

Client Locks are useful when you want to distribute a pre set-up version of the Client
software with few options. This allows you to better control your costs and reduce
support issues associated with users who might misconfigure the software.

EMail Notifications
(Administrator login only)

The RBS Server can send EMail Notifications triggered by events. Each of the emails
can go to multiple addresses, and can be individually configured and mail-merged using
templates. Emails are sent as HTML, and can include fonts, images, and colors. Emails
can also be sent to appear as plain text.

As with the body of the emails, you can also customize the Subject, From Address, CC
Address, and the Bcc Address.

Fifty eight macros can be included in the body of the emails, which are replaced with
data just before the email is transmitted. So, emails can contain information such as the
number of files backed up, the size of backup sessions, time, percentage of quota used,
and more.

Payment Gateway Setup
(E-Commerce PlugIn only, Administrator login)

This section is used to set up your Payment Gateways in the E-Commerce PlugIn. The
Payment Gateways supported by the PlugIn are listed on the right. There may be
different Gateways in your version of the PlugIn than in this example.


                                                                                 55

This is where you tell the E-Commerce PlugIn how to accept payments, and what
payment options to offer your customers. You can accept payments from credit cards
and debit cards (in some countries,) PayPal (in some countries,) and direct billing.

     Note: You must have Payment Gateway account(s) with your Payment
     Processor(s) (authorize.net, PayPal, etc.) to process payments automatically.
     The E-Commerce PlugIn has built in APIs for some Payment Processors, and
     two built-in Payment Gateways that do not require a Payment Processor.

     Attaching the E-Commerce PlugIn to your automatic Payment Processing
     Account requires advanced knowledge of online payment processing, and
     may require selecting specific options in your Payment Processing Account.
     Contact your Payment Processor for help.

     PLEASE NOTE: RBS cannot help you set up your Payment Processing
     Account(s). If you are applying for a new Payment Processing account, we
     recommend authorize.net if is available to you.

Only one credit/debit card gateway can be active.

The gateways that you set as "Active" show up on the Payment section of the Order
Form. In this example of the Order Form we have selected the Payflow Pro and PayPal
gateways. Customers can select either payment method.

Account Name - Give your Payment Account a name.

Gateway Name - Select the Payment Gateway from the list of pre-programmed
interfaces.

Login ID - Enter the login ID of your Gateway account (from your payment processor)

Login Password - Enter the login password of your Gateway account (from your
payment processor)

Transaction Param - Enter the Transaction Parameters code (if any) given to you by
your payment processor.

Vendor - If required, enter the Vendor ID (from your payment processor)

Partner - If required, enter your Partner ID (from your payment processor)

Currency - Select the currency in which to accept payments.

Test Mode - If selected, transactions will be approved by the PlugIn, but not processed
through the Payment Processor.

Is CVV required? - Select to require customers to enter the CVV code. (Check with
your Payment Processor.)

Create New - Select to create a new Payment Gateway.

Update - Select to update an existing Payment Gateway.




Offline Processing Payment Gateway
The built-in Offline Processing Gateway is for use with Payment Processors not
supported automatically by the E-Commerce PlugIn, and when you want to process
your credit/debit card payments manually.

When the Offline Processing Gateway is selected the credit card payment section
appears on the Order Form.

All credit cards with valid numbers (according to their embedded self-validating
checksums) and valid dates are approved. Software is deployed and backup accounts
are created and activated. Entries are made in the Orders worksheet. New User
Welcome Email notifications are sent to the customer.

The PlugIn does not validate credit card numbers or contact Payment Processors.

Customers can use their accounts immediately.

As the Service Provider, you may suspend accounts any time at your discretion.

The New User notification Email is sent (usually to the Service Provider or the Group
Manager.) Following is an example of a typical New User notification Email. You can
edit this template in Email Notifications.

In the below example, note that the partial credit card number (CC Number) is included.

To remain compliant with the rules governing the use of credit card numbers by
merchants, the E-Commerce PlugIn never sends the complete credit card number in an
Email, nor does it store the complete credit card number with the CVV code and date or
display it online in a web page.


                         CC Number:=XXXX11111111XXXX




                                                                                        59
Printed Documentation




Instead, the E-Commerce PlugIn sends the middle eight characters of the credit card
number in an email, and stores the rest of the number in its database, which displays in
the Orders worksheet:

To process a credit card payment manually, reconstitute the credit card number from
the Email and the Orders worksheet, and charge it manually using your manual or
virtual credit card terminal. If you are going to recur billing for this account, set that up
manually, too.

If the charge is approved, enter the Authorization Code (Auth Code) in the Orders
worksheet, select the Paid checkbox, and select the Update button to mark the order as
Processed.

Transactions are clearly marked as Paid or not Paid in the Orders worksheet.

     Note: For testing purposes, the Offline Processing Gateway always approves
     a transaction using the following credit card information:

                      Card Number: 4111111111111111

                     CVV Code: Any 3 Digit Number
                     Date: Any date beyond today's date




Bill Me Payment Gateway
The built-in Bill Me Gateway is for use when you want to offer to bill your customers
directly.

When the Bill Me Gateway is selected a Bill Me choice appears on the Order Form.

All orders are approved. Software is deployed and backup accounts are created and
activated. Entries are made in the Orders worksheet. New User Welcome Email
notifications are sent to the customer.

Customers can use their accounts immediately.

As the Service Provider, you may suspend accounts any time at your discretion.



                                                                                        61
Printed Documentation


The New User notification Email is sent (usually to the Service Provider or the Group
Manager.)

Configuration of the Bill Me Payment Gateway is slightly different from the other
gateways.

The text entered in the Transaction Param field will be displayed on the Order Form with
the Account Name. Use this field to give your customers special instructions.




Recurring Billing

The E-Commerce PlugIn can set up automated recurring billing through Payment
Processors that support this feature. You can turn on recurring billing for individual
Service Plans at the Plans screen by selecting a Payment Term.

If the customer pays through a Payment Gateway attached to an automated Payment
Processor, his credit card will be charged on the renewal date of his subscription, as
defined by the Payment Term you select. (Your Payment Processing account must
support Recurring Billing.)

At the time of the order the E-Commerce PlugIn instructs your Payment Processor to
automatically charge a customer's credit card or PayPal account on the Payment Term
defined in the Plans screen.

It is important to note that the Payment Processor performs the automated
recurring billing - not the E-Commerce PlugIn. The E-Commerce PlugIn verifies

the recurring payment and reports the result by issuing a query to the Payment
Processor. You must log into your Payment Processing account to manage your
recurring billing.

Server Locator, your Server Locator Host Name will automatically be entered here. Your
Server Locator Host Name is your serial number + ".ddns.rbsnet.net" like this:

                            12345678.ddns.rbsnet.net

Read more about the Server Locator here.

You can enter as many as 32 IP addresses or Domain Names here representing 32
RBS Servers, separated with semicolons, as long as the total length of the input does
not exceed 255 characters. The Client software will try the Servers in sequence until
one of them answers. This is useful if you have two mirrored RBS Servers operating as
fail-overs, or multiple RBS Servers sharing a common drive:

         server1.domain.com;server2.domain.com;myfailover.com


                                                                                           65

In the Evaluation version, enter your RBS Server's PUBLIC IP ADDRESS here to create
clients that can connect from OUTSIDE your network. Enter its PRIVATE IP ADDRESS
to create clients that can connect from INSIDE your network.

     What's my Public IP Address? - You can see your Public IP Address on the
     RBS Web Site. Go to http://remote-backup.com/support/


Admin Override Password (Normally do not change this. It may have been set
elsewhere.) - Some features of the Remote Backup Client can be changed on the Client
software itself after entering an override password. Pick your override password and
enter it here. Please note that this is CASE-SENSITIVE. This password is used at the
Client to change Administrator's features. See the RBS Server's Help File - Client
Administrator's Override for more information.

Temp Backup Path - (Normally do not change this. It may have been set elsewhere.)
This is the location on the Client's hard drive where temporary files are stored during
backup processing.

BitBackup Reference Path - (Normally do not change this. It may have been set
elsewhere.) The location of the BitBackup Data Store. BitBackup stores a copy of all the
files selected for backup using the BitBackup method (on the Schedule Screen). The
space required for this storage space is the total native file size of all files for which
BitBackup has been selected.

Encryption Method - Select the default encryption method. You can select from seven
types: Two kinds of DES, Triple DES, Blowfish 448-bits, AES 128-bits, AES 192-bits,
and AES 256-bits.

Client Locks - You can lock out certain features of the Client software, preventing end
users from using them. For example, if you don't want clients to be able to change
backup schedules or change file selections, select Lock Scheduler Window and Lock
Ability to Change/Add File Selection.

Client Locks are useful when you want to distribute a pre set-up version of the Client
software with few options. This allows you to better control your costs and reduce
support issues associated with users who might misconfigure the software.

The Properties screen is used during initial setup of the RBS Server. These settings can
be changed here, but they are usually initially set up in the RBS Server's installation
using the RBS Manager console applicatin rather than in this PlugIn's installation. See
the RBS Server's documentation for more information.

Changing any of these settings requires rebooting the RBS Server software.




Public IP - Your RBS Server's public IP address is displayed at the top of the screen.

Command Port - The RBS Server requires a Command Port and multiple Data Ports.
The default is 2774, a port number registered to RBS by IANA, the Internet authority
that controls top level domains and number assignments. This port number should not
be changed after you have distributed Client software, unless you re-install the Client
software with the new port number.

Server Root Folder - The default root folder for the Data area. All new users' backup
files will be placed here. Changing this folder after users have already done backups will
not move their data. This will only establish a new root folder for all subsequent new
users.

Server Database DSN - The Database DSN for the RBS Server's main database.

Locator Refresh Rate - The number of minutes between updates of the Server
Locator. Normally do not change this. The minimum is ten minutes.




                                                                                         67
Printed Documentation


Data Port Range - This is the range of data ports that will be assigned to Clients when
they contact the Server for backups and restores.

     For maximum speed under most conditions the data port range should include
     three ports per simultaneous user. The default is the range of ports that begins at
     29001 and ends at 29100

     After you restrict the port range you can open only that range of ports through your
     firewall, if necessary.
     Reducing the number of available ports too much can result in slow transfer
     speeds.

     Changing the Data Port range is a Server-side operation only. It is not necessary
     to redistribute Client software if you change the Data Port range.

     For more information on how to use Ports and how to configure routers and
     firewalls, see the Knowledge Base on the remote-backup.com website.

Log Folder - This is the folder in which to maintain the Server logs.

Log Level - Set to Standard, Detailed, or Verbose for increasing levels of logging.
Normally set to Standard.

Log Buffer - the number of lines to buffer the Server log in RAM, normally 1000. The
buffer will be flushed to the logs after this number of entries has been accumulated in
memory.

Auto Start - Normally selected, this turns on the RBS Manager's failsafe monitoring
system, which monitors the RBS Server's health and restarts it if necessary.

Automatic Web Updates - Checks with the RBS Upgrades Server daily to see if a
software update is available. If it is, a message will pop up without interrupting the
Server's operation.

Orders
(Administrator login)

The Orders worksheet contains transactions that need your attention. Use the Orders
worksheet to complete all your orders. Visit this page regularly.

Click the green button to the left of each transaction to expand it for more detail. These
transactions can include:

                       New online registrations
                       Account cancellations
                       Plan Updates
                       Purchases of more storage space
                       Recurring billing successes
                       Recurring billing failures

You will need to take action to complete some transactions. For example, if you are
using the Bill Me or Offline Processing Payment Gateways you may need to handle
billing manually when a New Registration comes in.

If you are using one of the automated Payment Gateways for credit cards or PayPal, the
transaction may have already been processed when you see it here. (E-Commerce
PlugIn only)

If a transaction has been processed automatically the Paid checkbox will be selected,
the AuthCode field will contain the authorization code returned by your Payment
Processor, and the Update button will not be active. In this case the E-Commerce
PlugIn has already processed the payment and deposited money in your Payment
Processing account.

To process a payment manually, use your manual or virtual credit card terminal, or
make an entry in your billing software, or take whatever action you need to take. Once
completed, mark the transaction Paid, enter an authorization code (Any text will work
here,) and press the Update button.

The Orders worksheet does not process orders or payments. It is only a worksheet for
you to use to make sure all the transactions that need attention are handled. The goal is
to have all the Paid checkboxes checkmarked.

See the section on Payment Gateway Setup for more information on how the Orders
worksheet works with automated payment processing.

Manage Users screen. This allows you to remotely change some settings for users.
Changes are automatically downloaded and applied during the next backup session.

If your software also includes the Remote Helpdesk PlugIn, you can use it to remotely
access your end users' computers for real-time remote control of the monitor, keyboard,
and mouse.




Click the Remote Management icon.

The first screen in the End User Remote Management console allows you to configure
Client Locks. You can lock out certain features of the Client software, preventing end
users from using them. For example, if you don't want clients to be able to change
backup schedules or change file selections, select Lock Scheduler Window and Lock
Ability to Change/Add File Selection.

Client Locks are useful when you want to distribute a pre set-up version of the Client
software with few options. This allows you to better control your costs and reduce
support issues associated with users who might misconfigure the software.

The second tab in the User Remote Management console is for Backup/Report Options.

Report Mode: Enable Synchronization - Creates a report showing the differences
between the client's catalog (what the Client thinks is stored on the Server) and the
Server's database (what is actually stored on the Server)

Update Mode: Enable Sync (Purge) - Depending on the results of the Report Mode
operation, this option can be used to purge files from the RBS Server which do not
show up in the Client's catalog, and are no longer needed.

Enable Sync (Recover) - Depending on the results of the Report Mode operation, this
option adds files to the Client's catalog which exist in the RBS Server but not in the
Client's catalog.

Request Support Pack/Diagnostics Report - This is a "once only" action. It instructs
the RBS Client software to create a Service Pack and Diagnostic Report, and send it to
the RBS Server. The Service Pack is sent in standard .ZIP format to the Client's Data
Root directory on the RBS Server.

Change Log Level Settings - This options changes the log level of the Client software.

This is where you define the dates and times for the Backup Sets to run. RBackup can
run multiple Backup Sets. Select the Backup Set you want to edit.

This screen contains a box called Backup Type, which is where you select the type of
backup this Backup Set will run.

Incremental - Entire files will be backed up which have been modified since the last
backup. Then, after they are backed up, the files will be marked on the disk as having
been backed up. This is the default and most widely-used way to back up data files.

Differential - Entire files will be backed up which have been modified since the last
backup, the same as Incremental. However, after the files are backed up, they will not
be marked as having been backed up. The reason for this option is in case you also
want to do tape backups as well as remote backups. Your tape backup software relies
on the marks placed on the files to determine which files need to be backed up. So, you
don't want to remove them with your Remote Backup.

Full - Entire files will be backed up regardless of whether they have been changed
since their last backup. This is the least-used option because it results in the largest
Backup Sets and longest on-line times.

BitBackup - Only the parts of files that have changed will be backed up. This option
creates sub-file or "patch" backups. This creates the smallest backups that take the
least amount of time, and is the recommended default setting. For more information on
how BitBackup works, see How BitBackup Works.

Backup Schedule

Daily - Selecting this option will launch a backup every day, seven days a week.

Weekly - This schedule lets you select which days of the week to do a backup.

Monthly - On this schedule you can select the first, second, third, fourth or fifth of any
day of the week. Here are some examples: You can pick the first and third Wednesdays
of each month. You can select the second Tuesday and Thursdays. There are a lot of
possible schedules you can use here.

Once Only - This schedule will launch a single backup session, one time only, on a
specified date you can pick from a pull-down menu containing a calendar.

On Demand - Pick this selection if you want this backup set to be launched on demand
only - not through the scheduler. You can then launch this backup set through the Run:
Run Now menu choice in the Client software. You can also run it through Windows
Scheduled Tasks.

Start Time - For each of these schedules you can select a Start Time and an Attempt
Window. It is important to remember that the Start Time is on a 24-hour schedule, and
that anything after midnight is the next day. This means that if you want to back up
Friday's work, and you want the backup session to take place after midnight, you should
select a time early in the morning of Saturday, not Friday.

The Attempt Window is the number of hours Remote Backup will attempt to perform
the backup. Selecting a start time of, for example, 1:00am will not necessarily cause the
backup session to start at 1:00am, although it might. Remote Backup might not be able
to perform a backup for a variety of reasons - the Server is too busy, files are locked,
the computer isn't turned on.

In the event that Remote Backup can't perform a backup at the selected Start Time, it
will attempt the backup session some time during the next period of time determined by
the number of hours you select here.


BitBackup Threshold Settings

BitBackup is a special kind of backup that backs up only the changed parts of files
instead of the full files. It is sometimes called "sub-file" backup or "patch" backup.
BitBackup is especially useful for very large files when only small parts of the files
change between backups. For a complete explanation, see How BitBackup Works.




84
                                                                User Remote Management


For example, if only a five-character word changes in a 2 megabyte document,
BitBackup will back up only five characters. This can save large amounts of storage
space on the Server, and it can significantly speed up the time needed to do a backup.

BitBackup always backs up a full file the first time. Thereafter, it backs up only the
changed parts of the file. Each of the BitBackup backups sent after a full backup can
restore the file up to the point in time when that backup was done, called cumulative
backups. So, as time goes on, BitBackup archives become larger as they contain more
changes.

Periodically, BitBackup needs to reset - a process called Roll-Forward. To do this,
Remote Backup sends the full file again, and then resets BitBackups, which reduces
their file size back to the minimum. This process cycles according to the settings at the
bottom of this screen.

Roll-Forward Threshold - This is the number of BitBackups that will be done before
Remote Backup resends the full file again.

Threshold Size - The percentage of BitBackup size to full-file size. In the example on
this screen, when the size of the most recent BitBackup archive exceeds 50% of the
size of the full file, Remote Backup will perform a Roll-Forward, re-sending the full file.

Using the Threshold Size feature instead of the Roll-Forward Threshold setting takes
more time during preparation of a backup, because Remote Backup needs make a
BitBackup archive to compare its size to the full file.

Differential Mode - Select this checkbox to set a Backup Set defined as BitBackup to
operate in Differential Mode. Differential Mode in BitBackup operates the same way as
Differential Mode for entire files, except that with BitBackup only the parts of the files
that have changed are transmitted to the RBS Server. Archive bits are not reset. This
setting is useful if you need to coordinate your Remote Backups with local Tape
backups.

Use Task Scheduler - Select this checkbox to use the Windows Task Scheduler to
launch this backup set instead of using RBackup's built-in scheduler. Some applications
have the potential to interfere with RBackup's built-in scheduler, especially when
RBackup is running in Service Mode. It is generally considered more reliable for wide-
scale distributions to use the Windows Task Scheduler.

The Options button let you change the Windows account under which this task runs,
and control the computer's power management options
.

Purge/Retention & Advanced Options

The settings on this tab control file retention policy, session quota, file selection method,
and optional actions that can be taken at the end of backup sessions.

Keep latest version of all files online - Check this setting if you want to keep the most
recent version of a file regardless the other settings on this screen. For example,
assume you have set Purge Files older than to 30 days. If you only have a single copy
of a file within that time frame, and you do not checkmark this option, that file will be
erased when its age is over 30 days. If you checkmark this option, that file will be
retained regardless of its age until a more recent one appears at your RBS Server.

Purge Files older than - Use this setting to set the retention period of the files in this
Backup Set to a number of days. In this example, files will be retained for 30 days and
then erased from the RBS Server.

Number of Backup Sets to Keep Online - When Purge Files Older Than is not
selected, this option becomes available. You can select a number of backup sets to
keep online, and have the Client software delete old backup sets (all the files in a
backup set) in a First-In-First-Out method. For example, if you have this set to 7, when
the 8th Backup Set is stored, the oldest backup set will be deleted.

Purge if deleted/unmarked - Select this checkbox to automatically delete files from the
Server at the end of their retention period if they are deleted from the Client or if they
are deselected (unmarked) by the Client.

Session Quota - You can set a limit on the amount of data an individual Backup Set
can send to the Server in a single session. You might want to do this to limit a first
backup from a Client who has a large amount of data, so that it sends the first backup


86

over a series of backup sessions rather than all at once. You can also use this to help
define different backup plans for sales and pricing purposes. Select the Session Quota
in megabytes (a gigabyte is 1000 megabytes) OR enter zero for unlimited.

File Selection - This sets the way RBackup selects files for backup. If set to Archive Bit,
RBackup will select files that have changed since the last backup, according to the
archive setting for the file. This is a very fast way to select files. However, if another
program resets the archive bit before the backup, the file might not be selected for
backup.

Setting the File Selection method to Modified Date/Time has an advantage and a
disadvantage: It can select files for backup regardless of the archive bit, so it's generally
more reliable. Its disadvantage is that during a backup session the file selection process
is slower than using the archive bit - sometimes quite a bit slower. This might not
matter, however, if backups are done at night when nobody is using the computer.

FastPick is a fast file selection method that compares the date and time of all files with
the date and time of the most recent backup for this backup set. If a file has been
modified since the previous backup was performed, it is backed up.

LogOff/Shutdown - You can set the Client computer to either log off the current user or
shut down the computer at the end of the backup session.

The Configure button saves all your changes.

When end users cancel their accounts the Canceled Account Email notification is sent,
and the following screen is displayed. The text is taken from the HTML file
\cancelled.html.




An entry is made in the Orders worksheet, and no other action is taken. The account IS
NOT suspended. No changes are made to recurring billing. Backups will continue as
normal until the Service Provider manually suspends or deletes the account.

Service Providers have different ways of dealing with cancellations. Some will offer to
refund the remaining balance of the subscription immediately, and some will wait until
the next subscription renewal date to cancel without a refund. Therefore, cancellation is
a manual process for the Service Provider.

Usually a Service Provider will manually suspend or delete an end user's account and
cancel recurring billing through the Payment Processor's online console (not a part of
the E-Commerce PlugIn) and may wait to do so until the end of the user's current
subscription period. This is consistent with the wording in the default End User License
Agreement (EULA).

Installation
Installation of the Web Manager and E-Commerce PlugIns should be performed by
someone familiar with installing Web Servers. This is not a trivial installation. While
there is an automated installer, you must manually edit the web.config file, HTML files,
and IIS settings. We strongly recommend having RBS remotely install this PlugIn for
you.

Even if RBS installs the PlugIns for you, you are responsible for editing the HTML files
and database to include your own company name, product name, and other information
specific to your business. You will need to understand HTML coding techniques to edit
the HTML files, and follow instructions in other parts of this documentation to further
brand your Client software and the web pages that make up these two PlugIns. This
chapter includes instructions on which HTML files to edit.




      This PlugIn requires other software from Microsoft to be installed first.
          These are called Prerequisites. Please install and verify all the
              Prerequisites (see below) before installing this PlugIn.

       The Free Installation service provided with some RBS software packages
     includes installing the purchased software in the default location only. It does
     not include installing or configuring any of the Prerequisites. If you would like
      RBS to install and configure your Prerequisites, or to move your software to
               another computer, we can do so for an additional charge.

                 Order PlugIn Installation (including Prerequisites) Here




This PlugIn must be installed on the RBS Server computer in the \Web\ folder of
the Application Directory.

If there is an existing web site on the server on which you will install this PlugIn,
additional manual adjustments will need to be done. The installer uses only the default
settings for the first web site on a server.

This installation includes two PlugIns - the Web Manager PlugIn and the E-Commerce
PlugIn. While the installer installs both PlugIns, only the PlugIn(s) for which you are
authorized will function. The menu system will display only features associated with the
PlugIn(s) for which you are authorized.




                                                                                         95
Printed Documentation

RBS' free installation service is for a standard configuration in the default location, after
all prerequisites have been installed and configured by the end user. If you want a
different type of installation, different defaults, or a different location please ask your
installation engineer to quote a price for this extra work.

Unless you have contracted RBS to do so, you are responsible for developing and
uploading your own customized graphics, and for completing all the program defaults
and branding. Full instructions are included in this documentation.


Prerequisites

The Web Manager PlugIn requires the following prerequisites. To find out how to check
for these prerequisites, see "How to Check for Prerequisites" further down this page.
Please note that the free installation service offered with some software packages
covers only the purchased software, and not the Prerequisites.

         Console login with Administrator rights
         RBS Server v11 or greater installed and tested
         The RBS Web Manager Installer file (RBSWebManager.exe)
         Internet Information Server v6 or greater, installed and working
         ASP.NET enabled
         MS .NET framework versions 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5
         (If the RBS Server uses the SQL Server PlugIn) SQL Management Studio
          Express installed
         SSL Certificate installed (E-Commerce PlugIn only)
         Router and Firewall setup complete.
         The PlugIns must be installed in the \Program Files\RBS Server\Web\ directory.

The Web Manager Installer verifies most prerequisites (except for the SSL certificate)
and will notify you if you need to install something else.

The Web Manager Installer installs a default self-signed SSL certificate for testing
purposes. If you intend to make your Web Manager available on the Internet, you
should purchase and install your own SSL certificate.


1.       Run the installer file, RBSWebManager.exe on your RBS Server computer.

Enter the fully qualified URL for the website hosting your Web Manager.




96
                                                                               Installation




The installer creates a file called web.config in the \Web\WebManager\ folder.




The web.config file contains settings that control how the web site works. It can be
edited with any text editor (like Notepad.) Do not edit this file with MS Word or Wordpad.

Open the web.config file with Notepad and search for the following text:



                                                                                        97

           <!--License Serial-->
           <add key="SerialNo" value="##SERIAL##"/>


Replace ##SERIAL## with the serial number of your RBS Server, which can be found
on the Help : About screen on the RBS Manager application.

Save the web.config file.


2.   Verify the Security Account that IIS Uses to Run Web Manager

The account that IIS is running under when you need to make changes to the security
settings. If, for example, your Web application writes to files or to a database, you'll
need to grant the correct permissions to the folder or database. Before you can change
these security settings, it's important the know what account IIS is using.

Accounts Used by IIS:

             Windows XP: ASPNET
             Windows 2003 server and above: Application Pool Identity.


How to find out the application pool identity (screenshots are for Windows 2003
Server)

Right click on the virtual directory and select properties. Click on the virtual directory tab
and make a note of the value in the Application Pool drop down control.

Give read and write permission to the user account from "Verify the Security Account
that IIS Uses to Run Web Manager" above. Windows XP uses the ASPNET account,
Windows 2003 server and above uses the application pool identity. To find out the
application pool identity in your version of IIS, refer to "Verify the Security Account that
IIS Uses to Run Web Manager."

This step is necessary if the RBS Server is using SQL Server as its database. This
requires the SQL Server PlugIn.

There are two steps to configure the web manager for SQL Server.

      Create a new user account in SQL Server (RBS) and use it in the web manager
       connection string (web.config).
      Setup SQL Server for SQL and Windows authentication.

Run the SQL Server Management Studio. Select Run and type ssmsee

Right-click the Users/Logins node and choose New User/New Login.

In the Username text box, type MyWebsiteUser.

In the Login Name text box, type MyWebsiteUser. Alternatively, you can click the little
button with the three ellipses and browse for the user name.

At the bottom half of the screen, you see a box labeled Database role membership. In
this box, you can choose a number of roles that you want to grant to your new user.
Give users as few permissions as possible. A good choice is db_datareader and
db_datawriter that allows the account to both read from and write to tables in the
database.

Now change the web manager web.config file to connect to this SQL instance with the
created username and password. Open the \webmanager\web.config file with
Notepad and search for the following text:


     <!--RBS Server Database Type 0-Access, 1-SQL Server-->
     <add key="DBType" value="##RBSSERVERDBTYPE##" />

     <!--Web Manager Database Type 0-Access, 1-SQL Server-->
     <add key="ClientDBType" value="##CLIENTDBVALUE##" />

     <add key="managerdb" value="##MANAGERDB##"/>


Change ##RBSSERVERDBTYPE## to 1

Change ##CLIENTDBVALUE## to 1

Change ##MANAGERDB## to Server=DATACENTERSERVB\SQLEXPRESS;Initial
Catalog=RBS;User ID=MyWebsiteUser;password=Pa$w0rD

     (For the above value, use the actual username and password.)

Save the web.config file.

How to Check for Prerequisites

Administrator Privileges

                        Make sure you have an Administrator's login. If RBS technicians
                         are installing they will need this login.


RBS Server v11 or greater installed and tested

                        Run the RBS Manager console application.
                        Select Help : About
                        Read the version number.

     If the RBS Server is not installed, or if its version number is less than 11, install or
     upgrade it at the Products Download page.


Is IIS (Internet Information Services or Application Server) installed?

               Open Run
               Type inetmgr
               If IIS installed, this will open the IIS Manager application

     If IIS is not installed, install and configure it. Search Microsoft Technet for more
     information.

     Note: If IIS is installed prior to .NET framework installation, then please follow the
     steps:

               Open command prompt (Open Run and then type CMD)
               Change to the following directory
                    (for 32 bit systems)
                      C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727
                    (for 64 bit
                      systems)C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727
               Type aspnet_regiis.exe –i


Is .Net framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 installed?

                Open control panel -> Add or Remove programs
                Look for Microsoft .NET Framework (all three versions)




                                                                                            113
Printed Documentation


      If .NET (all three versions) is not installed, install it. Search Microsoft Technet for
      more information.

Note: please reboot the system after the .NET framework install is done.


Is ASP Installed?

                     Open Service Manager (enter services.msc from Run).
                     Look for “ASP.Net State Service” and see if it is Started.

      If it is not started, then start the service and change the startup type to “Automatic”.


Is Asp.Net enabled in IIS? (These instructions vary for different operating
systems)

                     Open Control Panel
                     Select Administrative Tools
                     Select Internet Information Services
                     Expand your computer name
                     Click on "Web Service Extensions."
                     Make sure "ASP.NET" status is “Allowed”, if not, then right click and
                      click enable

      Search Microsoft Technet for more information.


Is SQL Server Management Studio installed? (Only necessary if the RBS Server
uses the SQL Server PlugIn)

                     Open Run
                     Type ssmsee
                     If the software starts, it is installed.

      If the software does not start, it is not installed. Download it and install it from the
      Microsoft download site.


SSL Certificate installed (E-Commerce PlugIn only)

      While an SSL certificate is not required by the software, it is strongly
      recommended if you are going to provide web access to the public. Any certificate
      authority can provide an SSL certificate. Prices start at about $29 per year.

     For instructions on installing your SSL certificate, see the Microsoft Support site.
     Search for "How to implement SSL in IIS"

     A self-signed certificate is installed by default for testing. You can replace it later.




Router and Firewall Setup
Since the RBS Server should already be installed and tested, the firewall and router
should have also been properly set up. If you still need to set up your router and firewall,
you can find instructions at the following link.

                                Router and Firewall Setup

For the Web Manager and E-Commerce PlugIns you will need to handle ports 80 and
443 the same way the documentation at the above link suggests handling port 2774.




                                                                                           115
Translating for Different Languages
Note: If RBS does not currently support your language, we can give you the raw
language files so you can translate them yourself. Return them to us and we will
compile them into your software.


Client Simple Interface

The Client software's Simple Interface is available in different languages. End users can
change the language preference after the Client software is installed. As the Service
Provider, you can set the default language in the Customize Client Installer screens.


Client Advanced Interface

The Advanced Interface of the Client software cannot be translated. It is available only
in English.


Client Installer

The text in the Client Installer defaults to English and does not automatically change
when you change the default language. The Installer text can be edited in the
Advanced Settings of the Customize Client Installer screens and must be translated
manually.


Client Documentation

You can translate the Client documentation when you customize it. It is available from
RBS only in English. See this section for more information.
